Leftism is not a political-economic movement. It is a metastasizing cancer that consumes and kills every healthy body – and body politic – infected by it. There's no treatment but cauterization.

"The Left – which was once (ostensibly) the political movement of the poor – made itself rich and, having done so, now seeks to make everyone else poor, using the wealth it now possesses.

Similarly, the Left favored freedom of speech so long as it was useful to the Left – and so long as it was the Left that was complaining about the abuses of political and economic institutions it did not control. Once it acquired control over those institutions, they were useful as mechanism for controlling speech that questioned the Left.

Likewise, wars – particularly those in other countries – which the Left once opposed with gusto, because it served the interests of the Left. The chief one being to undermine public confidence in the government, which – at the time – the Left did not control. Here it is important to make a distinction between the Left and Democrats. A Leftist – pieties about “democracy” aside – is the farthest thing from a Democrat; i.e., a person who thinks government exists to further the lot of the average person. A Leftist uses such persons, of course – who are duped by Leftists into believing these elitists are interested in them, beyond their usefulness as expedients.

Hence Lenin’s term, useful idiots."

    I like the analogy of leftism and cancer. Or it could be a virus too. That is why, if we can't kill the cancer (cauterize), we need to isolate it (national divorce) AND build a wall (real or figurative) to keep the cancer from spreading. Leftists are leaving the states they have already destroyed, and moving to Texas and Florida. And they keep their leftist ideology, and will destroy these states too, if we don't act.

    just about everything liberals/democrats want is 100% unconstitutional

    starting with LBJ's "Great Society", all unconstitutional

    but it was allowed to be placed into law

    part of the reason is that courts have ruled they cannot stop a law, they must act after it is passed

    i think we need a Constitutional Amendment to allow review BEFORE laws of a certain type /subject are passed
